Also for the reviewer who said this is tasty, ummm... you're reviewing the wrong product. These are capsules, they don't taste at all.
Though not enteric-coated, these do not give me fish burps.
This product is on the WAPF list as "good" (only fermented cod liver oil is "best" and I find even the capsules of FCLO too nasty).
It contains 2000 IU vitamin A, 400 IU of vitamin D, 80 mg EPA and 100 mg DHA. WAPF suggests the equivalent of 10000 IU daily, so that would be 5 of these pills. In contrast, the Swanson product Double-Strength Cod Liver Oil 250 Sgels requires 4 pills daily.
As with the Swanson product, since I have heart disease, I do not feel these provide enough EPA & DHA, so I also take Kirkland Signature Enteric Coated Fish Oil Omega 3 1200 MG Fish Oil, 684 MG of Omega 3 Fatty Acids, 180 softgels
These also have 10 IU vitmain E added as a preservative. The "other ingredients" listed include gelatin, glycerin and water (same as the Swanson product) and retinyl palmitate and cholecalciferol (vitamins A & D). Though those are the "right" vitamins A & D, the bottle does not state their source (Swanson states their vitamins A & D are FROM cod liver oil), so if that matters to you, you should get the Swanson product.
I find either satisfactory, and tend to order depending on what is the best deal at the time that I need to replenish supplies.
Well, as I grew older and got my own will, I stopped taking the oil, the taste was just too horrible. But I saw that while my mother never had a cold and never got the flu, I would get both ever year. So I started looking for a substitute to drinking the oil. I landed on soft-gels. Unfortunately, with most brands you have to take two pills a day, and well, I need to take the oil to remind me to take the oil, apparently. So I forgot it. It is also expensive. So the years went by and I stopped thinking about it.
A year or so ago, my doctor suggested I take supplements, as I am a poor eater (if I bother eating at all). I went on Amazon and purchased vitamins and supplements and whatnots, and I thought to myself that maybe they have found a way to put the daily need of cod liver oil into one pill instead of two. Lo and behold, this is it! I got it as well as the other stuff I got. It is the only one I still manage to take. I haven't had a cold since I started taking these, so I am happy about that. I will continue taking these.
But,only 90 mg. of EPA and 120 mg.of DHA.
The minimum of what counts.
If you're wondering whether or not to try it - I'd suggest that you take it for a few months before your next cholesterol check and see if your numbers improve. Also, anyone with concerns about their teeth & gums would do well to take it -- and if you aren't concerned about your gums, remember that the bacteria in your mouth can cause/inflame issues with the heart - so why take the chance?
Well, I wasn't too good about it until two years ago when my hair started to fall out. Now I am not whining about a seasonal molt in which one loses more hairs than the usual 100 per day that you lose anyway. I am talking about hair literally coming out in my hands when I washed my hair. It was awful and pretty soon I had lost 1/3 of my hair. A friend told me that she had a similar experience and Cod Liver Oil had helped her. Well, my memory is good and I remembered from childhood that Cod Liver Oil tasted awful and so I went looking for capsules and found these softgels from Amazon. I took about 1/3 of the bottle and my hair began to grow back. Wow, I thought. "I wonder if the softgels did that or if it was just a fluke?" I had been stressed, had surgery, had anesthesia etc. etc. and thought the hair growing back in could have been the result of ANYTHING. I stopped the softgels.
A year later. I went through a period of horrid stress. My hair began to fall out by the handfuls again! This time the hair loss continued and continued, but I was too stressed and too depressed to worry about hair loss or cod liver oil or anything else. I just figured I was gonna up and die. I wasn't old enough to die, but everything was going to pot. It wasn't just the hair. I was in the hospital for a heart work up.Read more ›
